Once the chocolate is sufficiently melted, dip each cookie into the melted mixture halfway, coating it on both sides, then quickly place on wax paper.

Top With Peppermint

While the chocolate is still warm, sprinkle crushed peppermint onto the top of each cookie (Image 1), then place in the refrigerator to cool for about 15 minutes (Image 2).
